We raise Nubian goats. We have a very small herd. We look forward to every spring for the cute kids we will get. All of our kids are bottle fed. Nubian goats are dairy goats, but were originally bred as a dual purpose breed. If you compare the goats to the cows, the Nubian goat is like the Jersey cow. They give a wonderfully high butterfat. Great for making butter and cheese. They will average around a gallon a day per doe. A good Nubian can produce 2 gallons a day, but like anything else, will be a harder keeper. We like the one gallon mark as they are still able to hold their weight with little grain. Our Nubian's love attention. Being bottle fed from birth, they are more like big dogs, coming when called. Yet oddly enough they also remind me of cats. Choosing who they will show affection to and climbing and jumping every where. Goats can also be used as pack animals or for pulling a cart, but you must make sure that you condition them slowly to build the muscle to do the work.
